The HP Elitebook Folio has been getting some good reviews. I had some hands-on last September and I was impressed at the build and pro-level features. A 54Wh battery and additional slate battery give it some good adaptor-free flexibility too but it was disappointing to see a 1366×768 on such a device.

Engadget got the information from an HP spokesperson and US and EU customers can expect to have the option in March.
